Best craftsmen from 12 countries attend «Verny fair»
Jewelry, pottery, ethnic souvenirs and many other goods were available at the annual “Verny Fair” in Almaty. All the goods that were exhibited in the National Museum are made by talented craftsmen from across the world. Many craftsmen produce products directly at the spot and sell them without intermediaries and upcharge. Quite original items produced in a single copy were available at the fair. Designers and artists from across Central Asia, as well as Georgia, Latvia, Ukraine, Germany, Bulgaria, Russia and Japan attended the fair. The international trade fair was opened for the first time nine years ago.
ALEXEY BOROVIKOV, ORGANIZER OF FAIR:
150 years ago our city was called Verny. The city grew and grew, there were fairs and we decided to revive this tradition, and to organize the “Verny Fair”. While organizing the fair, we maintained its spirit.
